Condylox (podofilox) Topical Solution 0.5% is an antimitotic drug used to treat genital warts that appear on the outside of the body, but this medicine is not a cure for genital warts.

Apply Condylox Topical Solution twice daily morning and evening (every 12 hours), for 3 consecutive days, then withhold use for 4 consecutive days.
